Cisco buys mobile collaboration company

Cisco this week acquired Collaborate.com, a Boston-based developer of mobile collaboration applications.

Cisco did not disclose financial terms of the acquisition.

Collaborate's products provide unified document sharing, task management and team communication capabilities that are designed to enable mobile workforces to collaborate on projects. Users can create virtual collaboration rooms where they can chat and share documents, notes, photos and videos, Cisco says.

Collaborate's platform also integrates with e-mail and third party cloud services to ease collaboration for mobile workers. Cisco plans to use the Collaborate products to provide a system that enables mobile workforces to work from anywhere.
